Placement Opportunities

Are you a student looking to kickstart your career in health, social care or social justice?

At Likewise, we feel strongly about the people we work with, about broad, inclusive communities, promotion of wellbeing, and about what good care looks like and so our voluntary placements are designed to equip the next generation of leaders with the skills, values and emotional intelligence needed to make an immediate impact in whatever career path they choose.

Our placements will see you given hands-on, front-line experience with a diverse client group, as part of a cohort of future leaders embarking on a learning journey full of opportunity to nourish your personal growth and professional development.
